Grace Lee on Grace Lee Boggs

Okay, so— here’s a woman WAY ahead of her time. Activist/philosopher Grace Lee Boggs, a Chinese-American woman born to immigrant parents in Brooklyn in the early 20th century dedicated her prodigious intellect and great heart to the causes of civil rights for African-Americans in Detroit. How’d she get there, this young girl out on her own, invisible because of racism, poverty and gender? Listen to filmmaker Grace Lee tell the fascinating — and relevant— story of a woman who made a difference.
